No one who has had experience of the progress of Botany as a science 
can doubt that it has been more impeded in this country by the repulsive 
appearance of the names which it employs than by any other cause whatever, 
and that, in fact, this has proved an invincible obstacle to its becoming the 
serious occupation of those who are unacquainted with the learned languages, 
or wlio, being acquainted with them, are fastidious about euphony and Greek 
or Latin purity. — Dr. Lindley. 

Botany has this great practical advantage over all other sciences as a 
means of i^niversal culture, that the materials are the most generally accessible 

of any scientific material in the world What is needed is that its 

terminology should be popularised Historicallj' almost the first of 

sciences, botany is naturally and eductionally first in order to the enquiring 
mind. Its objects are near our homes, awakening to our minds, and inviting 
to our touch. Botany is adapted to be the universal preparatory science, the 
science to infuse the scientific sense. "WTiy should we allow a pile of hetero- 
geneous names to stand as a barrier between our people and the fairest gate of 
knowledge ? These strange names are all but barren of interest in themselves ; 
what interest they possess springs wholly out of the objects thej- represent. 
The objects and their mutual relations might be learnt quite as effectually 
through congenial names, if only one-thousandth part of the labour that has 
been expended on those were bestowed on these. — Prof. Eaele, " English 
Plant Kames," p. cix. 


PEEFACE. »^'^" 

The compilation of this Dictionary was undertaken at the request of 
Mr. W. Robinson, of The Garden newspaper, at whose expense the work 
is pubhshed, he having advocated in his journal a more general use 
of English names for the plants, trees, and shrubs which are commonly 
grown in our gardens and pleasure-grounds, and who wished the 
horticultural public to have at command a list of all such names now 
appUed to these as well as to all other cultivated and useful plants in- 
cluding our native flora and the native plants and trees of America and 
the colonies. 

It is an undeniable fact that the vast majority of people of all 
classes who take an interest in horticultural pursuits consists of those 
who, never having received any classical or botanical training, find it 
difficult to learn and remember, and impossible to understand, the Latin 
or scientific names by which plants are spoken of and described by 
botanists. These names, however useful and even necessary they may be 
as technical terms to the systematic botanist, become a senseless jargon in 
the vain attempt to fix them amongst our " household words," and most 
of us are keenly alive to the inconsistency of employing words from a 
foreign and even dead language to name such familiar everyday objects 
as the flowers and shrubs which are grown in our gardens and woods. 
' Notwithstanding the copious use of Latin, it would be a grievous mistake 
to suppose that Enghsh names do not exist for most of our cultivated 
plants, the fact being that such names do exist, and abundantly, many of 
them dating back to the days of Spenser, Shakespeare, Gerard, and 
Parkinson — nearly 800 years ago — although they have now fallen into 
disuse, and are only to be met with in books, in consequence of what the 
Rev. John Earle, in his excellent little volume on "English Plant Names," 
terms " the gratuitous rejection of good native names in favour of some 
Latin name, through mere contempt for homely things and affectation of 
novelty." No farther back, mdeed, than the commencement of the present 
century, it would appear that, even amongst gardeners, it was the ordinary 


custom to Speak of plants by their English names, as we find the poet 

Crabbe thus describing an exceptional case : — 

Higli-sounding words our worthy gardener gets, 
And at Ills club to wondering swains repeats ; 
He there of Jthus and Rhododendron speaks, 
And Allium calls his Onions and his Leeks. 

There Arums, there Leontodons we view, 
And Artemisia grows where Wormwood grew. 

(Crabbe's " Parish Register," Part I., Baptisms.) 

and there can be little doubt that many good old English plant-names 
which, happily, are still preserved to us in books, have been gradually 
ousted from popular use and sacrificed for Latin terms, not from any 
conviction that these were better or more appropriate, but simply 
through the spread of the craze for " high-sounding words." To quote 
Mr. Earle further, " The adoption of classical words Avas in deference to 
the prestige of the classical languages at first, then it became a piece of 
scholastic j)edantry which, spreading ever wider and wider, became at 
length a fashion because it was a flag of social pretension." 

A botanist writes in The Garden (vol. xxiii., p. 403) : — " But what 
do we see in popular naming ? . . . . The whole business 
breeds nothing but confusion, as if there was not enough already in the 
same direction." Such a remark comes with a peculiarly bad grace from 
a scientific botanist, and may be regarded as a stone thrown by one who 
lives in a glass house of rather extensive dimensions, when Ave consider the 
deplorable condition of his own pet nomenclature in this respect. There 
is, in fact, no greater stumbling-block and no more torturing embarrass- 
ment in the way of the botanical student than the swarms of synonyms 
which beset him at almost every step and, like the aliases of a culprit 
who is "wanted," serve rather to conceal than to point out the subjects 
to which they are aj^plied. The whole family of the Conifeiae, for in- 
stance, is almost smothered in this way, as anyone may see who chooses 
to look into the last edition of Gordon's " Pinetum," Avhere he will find 
that nearly all the trees there described have a greater or less number 
of synonyms applied to them, several of them as many as half-a-dozen or 
more apiece ! The practical results of this extreme plurality of scientific 
synonyms are Avell exemplified by an instance which occurred last year, 
when a correspondent of The Garden wrote to the effect that "The 
Bluebell of Scotland is Agraphis nutans," and that " the English Blue- 
bell is Hyacinthus non-scriptus " (The Garden for June 9, 1888, p. 523), 
in evident ignorance that the two names are synonymous for the same 
plant, Avhich lias yet the tAvo other synonyms of Scilla nutans and 
Hyacinthus anglicus. 

Many of the ncAv names Avhich have appeared in The Garden 
were absolutely needed for pjlants Avhich previously had no popular 


English names, and others are decided improvements on older names. 
As an instance in which it is a clear gain to " ring in the new, ring out 
the old," I may mention " Torch Lily," which I should think few would 
hesitate to adopt instead of " Eed-hot-poker Plant." In giving the 
popular and the scientific names of plants together, there is little left 
for the scientists to complain of. 

" One very simple view of the subject has been apparently overlooked, perhaps 
from its very simplicity. Why should plants and flowers be the only things that we 
are to have no means of speaking of in our own language ? The utility and necessity 
of the botanical names no one denies — a noble and simple invention, a " lingua franca " 
for the learned of all nations, though grievously overburdened with synonyms and 
masses of cumbersome " uncrystallised " matter. But why must ])eople who love 
flowers know them by these names only — names that to many of them convey no sort 
of meaning — for all people who cultivate or enjoy flowers have not such a knowledge 
of the dead languages as to make the names intelligible ? And why in any case speak 
in a dead language only of things so essentially living and affecting our daily use and 
happiness ? Why should a piece of pedantic tyranny be imposed on us in this matter, 
and this only ? Animals, birds, and insects also have their necessary scientific names, 
but no one reproves us for talking of a horse, or a sparrow, or a dragon-fly. Diseases 
have their universal names derived from Latin and Greek, used in scientific treatises and 
among members of the medical profession, and yet we commonly talk of gout, and small- 
pox, and scarlet fever. The bones and muscles of our bodies are all known in anatomy by 
such technical names, and yet in our every-day talk we may speak of rib, thigh-bone, 
and shoulder-blade. Why, then, should flowers only, of all tlie subjects that need a 
common language for purposes of classification and scientific research, have their 
purely technical appellations imposed on us, to the exclusion of such simple words in 
our own language as we use in other absolutely analogous cases ? . . . . 
Does it not come to this, that both kinds of names are necessary, each for 
its proper purpose ; the scientific name for classification, for study, for international 
research and correspondence, for business, for all rather dry and hard purposes ; but 
for daily life among flowers, in poetry and popular books, for common use among the 
many people whose enjoyment of flowers does not approach any scientific purpose, the 
familiar names in our own tongue? Let me ask our learned men, who possess 
the dead languages, and therefore do not feel the need of the simpler means of 
expression, to descend in imagination to the level of those to whom Day Lily has 
a distinct meaning, while Hemerocallis is a jumble of senseless syllables. Let them 
think how absurd it would be if some arbitrary tyranny obliged us to call other 
things of common utility or enjoyment by long Latin names. .... 
Why are plants, and plants only, to be banished to this philological limbo, a 
place of weariness and lifelessness, that those who love flowers for their beauty's 
sake do not care to have to explore in order to find names by which to know 
their treasures ? Will not our kindly savants rather help us to the supply of the 
living want and give us well-made English names in place of the perhaps ill-constructed 
ones that we should find for ourselves ? " (The Garden, vol. xxiv., p. 59.) 

The above from a lady correspondent of The Garden puts the case 
fau'ly for English names, and I shall conclude my quotations with Mr. 
Kuskin's remarks (in " Proserpina") on botany as now taught: — 

" Yesterday evening I was looking over the first book in which I studied botany — 
"Curtis's Magazine," pubhshed in 1795 at No. 3, St. George's Crescent, Blackfriars 
Road, and sold by the principal booksellers in Great Britain and Ireland. Its plates 
are excellent, so that I am always glad to find in it the picture of a flower I know. 
And I came yesterday upon what I suppose to be a variety of a favourite flower of mine. 


called, in Curtis, ' the St. Bruno's Lily.' I am obliged to say " what I suppose to be 
a variety," because my pet Lily is branched,* while this is drawn as unbranched, and 
especially stated to be so. And the page of text in wliicli this statement is made 
is so characteristic of botanical books and botanical science, not to say all science 
as hitlierto taught for the blessing of mankind, and of the difficulties thereby 
accomj)anying its communication, tliat I extract the i)age entire, printing it as 
nearly as possible in facsimile.

Botanists are divided in their opinions respecting the genus of 
this plant ; Linnaeus considers it as an Anthericum, Haller and Miller 
make it an Hemerocallis. 

It is a native of Switzerland, where, Haller informs us, it grows 
abundantlj- in the Alpine meadows, and even on the summits of the 
mountains ; with us it flowers in May and June. 

It is a plant of great elegance, producing on an unbranched stem, 
about a foot and a half high, numerous llowers of a delicate white 
colour, much smaller than, but resembling in form, those of the common 
white lily, possessing a considerable degree of fragrance. Their beauty 
is heightened by the rich orange colour of their anthera; ; unfortunately 
they are but of short duration. 

Jliller describes two varieties of it differing merely in size. 

A loamy soil, a situation moderately moist, with an eastern or 
western exposure, suits this plant best ; so situated, it will increase by 
its roots, though not very fast, and by jjarting these in the autumn 
it is usually propagated. 

Parkinson describes and figures it in his Parad. Tcrrcst., observing 
that " divers allured by the beauty of its flowers, l)ad brought it into 
these parts." 

* At least, it throws off its flowers on each side in a bewilderiiigly pretty way ; a real 
Lily can't branch, I believe; but, if not, what is the use of tlie botanical books saying "oa 
an unbranched stem ? " 


Now you observe, in this instructive page, that you have in the first place eight 
names given you for one flower ; and that, among these eight names, you are not 
even at liberty to make your choice, because the united authority of Haller and 
Miller may be considered as an accurate balance to the single authority of Linnseus ; 
and you ought therefore for the present to remain, yourself, balanced between the 
sides. You may be farther embarrassed by finding that the Anthericum of Savoy is 
only described as growing in Switzerland. And farther still, by finding that Mr. 
Miller describes two varieties of it, which differ only in size, while you are left to 
conjecture whether the one here figured is the larger or smaller, and how great the 
diff"erence is. 

Farther, if you wish to know anything of the habits of tlie plant, as well as its 
eight names, you are informed that it grows both at the bottoms of the mountains and 
the tops ; and that, with us, it flowers in May and June, — but you are not told when 
in its native country. 

The four lines of the last clause but one may indeed be useful to gardeners ; but 
— although I know my good father and mother did the best they could for me in 
buying this beautiful book ; and though the admirable plates of it did their work and 
taught me much — I cannot wonder that neither my infantine nor boyish mind was 
irresistibly attracted by the text, of which this page is one of the most favourable speci- 
mens ; nor, in consequence, that my botanical studies were — when I had attained the 
age of fifty — no farther advanced than the reader will find them in the opening chapter 
of this book. 

Which said book was therefore undertaken to put, if it might be, some elements 
of the science of botany into a form more tenable by ordinary human and childish 
faculties ; or — for I can scarcely say I have yet any tenure of it myself — to make the 
paths of approach to it more pleasant. In fact, I only know of it the pleasant 
distant effects which it bears to simple eyes ; and some pretty mists and mysteries, 
which I invite my young readers to pierce, as they may, for themselves, — my power 
of guiding them being only for a little way. 

Pretty mysteries, I say, as opposed to the vulgar and ugly mysteries of the so-called 
science of botany, — exemplified sufficiently in this chosen page. Respecting which, please 
observe farther : Nobody — I can say this very boldly — loves Latin more dearly than 
I ; but, precisely because I do love it (as well as for other reasons), I have always 
insisted that books, whether scientific or not, ought to be written either in Latin or 
English, and not in a doggish mixture of the refuse of both." 

It may not be out of place to observe that our leading nurserymen 
might, if so disposed, render valuable assistance to the work of dissemi- 
nating a knowledge of the English names of plants, if, in their catalogues, 
they made it a practice to give the vernacular names along with the bota- 
nical ones. This is very largely done by American nurserymen, and,, 
although it may seem invidious to single out any one establishment, it 
may be useful to mention the catalogue of hardy perennial plants issued 
by Messrs. "Woolson & Co., Passaic, New Jersey, as suggestive in this 

With regard to the present volume, it has been carefully compiled 
from all available sources of information in our standard botanical works, 
British and Colonial Floras, the leading horticultural journals, and the 
catalogues of British, American, and Australian nurserymen. Being 
simply a dictionary of names (of which it contains over 15,000), it formed. 


no part of the plan to introduce any matter descriptive of the plants, trees, 
and shrubs which it enumerates, and this must be looked for in botanical 
Avorks devoted to the purpose. The Latin or botanical names given are 
those which are most commonly employed and best known, and synonjTus 
are rarely noted, the few that are mentioned being chiefly in those cases 
Avhere two botanical names are pretty equally in use for the same plant, 
as, Centaurea — Amberboa — moschata (Sweet Sultan), Calla — Richardia — 
a^thiopica (Lily-of-the-Nile), &c. Familiar generic names, like Azalea, 
Crocus, Fuchsia, Iris, Phlox, &c., which have, to all intents and purposes, 
become English names, are retained as such. In the case of our native 
British plants, I have purposely omitted trivial local names, such as " Dog- 
chowps " and " Cuddy's-lugs," which savour of a chaw-baconism verging 
«lose on barbarism, and I have also left unnoticed the coarse and often 
grossly indelicate names Avhich occur in some of the old writers on plants, 
as no useful purpose could be served by the reproduction of such names. 

The book is probably far from being exhaustive or complete, as new 
names will be constantly arising from time to time, and it must be 
regarded as only a first step in the direction which it takes, but it is hoped 
that it Avill prove a handy and useful volume of reference, and a means 
of making the study of plants less technical and difficult to English- 
-speaking people.
